Yes, “gun control is not crime control.” More gun control equals more violent crime. Cities such as Chicago prove that. The gun is the “great equalizer.” This is especially true for women and men 60+ years old. My wife and I are 60+ and we need guns to protect us from younger, more powerful criminals. Do you really want to have a knife fight with an experienced criminal, and it is not his first knife fight?
Very rich people and families who are well-connected to political power have guns. Why should ordinary citizens be denied the same rights? Most citizens cannot afford armed bodyguards, we have to defend ourselves. Most liberal TV celebrities, movie stars and liberal politicians push for gun control. However, they have bodyguards with guns and/or they own guns.
